Our first 40 years
RESPONSIBLE SAFETY SINCE 1978
“RESPONSIBLE PROTECTION” since 1978 is our slogan as this marks the year in which the company inspired by this core value was established, when Turin was “only” a large automotive company.
Over the years, we have continued to expand, changing our models, our organization, our structure but continuing to offer the best technical and economic solutions through the application of “best practices” acquired cooperating with our customers.
We set out producing work gloves and now produce specialist automated systems for the management of indirect materials at the facilities of Customer Companies.
THE FOUNDER RENATO LANZI
This product, which was soon to replace the market of cut and sewn gloves, conquered a large swath of the automotive market.
LEATHER GLOVES AND WORK-WEAR
The acquisition of a specialized Italian glove factory facilitated entry to different markets (glass, rubber, etc.) at national and European level.
THE BRAND SAFETY SYSTEMS
The lab has been certified by the European Notified Body for the certification of work gloves, CTC of Lyon.
This period also marked the appearance of the Safety Systems brand and the start of production of first-generation Automatic Dispensers (stand- alone): OEM version refrigerated vending structures on which customized hardware and software were developed for the distribution of PPE.
This period was marked by extension of the product range to include special hand protection developed in close cooperation with the research labs of user companies.
Second-generation automatic dispensers (on line in real time interfaced with the company network) made their appearance, accompanied by development of increasingly specialized materials management software applications.
SETTING UP INDUSTRY 4.0
Setting up of the Safety Systems Industrial Vending and Safety Systems Hand Protection business divisions. Following far-reaching reorganization of the structure of the Division which comprises specific Marketing, R&D and Compliance functions, the Group expanded its business on the Italian and internal market through a network of specialized partners.
SECURITY SOLUTIONS FOR WORKERS
The Lanzi Group and the Safety Systems Divisions are becoming increasingly suppliers of services, consulting, focused on persons and their needs.
